Pressure to be magical

We feel pressure to “wake up like this”,

To have it all together.

But life won’t work to schedules

Can’t be forced. Just like the weather.


The job, the house, the boy, the girl,

The ring, the pram - then two.

And then if you have a third one then it’s “Was it what you meant to do?”


So many quotes say ‘Don’t Give Up’

but plans can go astray

So you can feel like twice the failure

if you chose to walk away.


Try not to rush to have it all,

For what happens when you do

Is you miss out all the magic.

in the time spent being you.

Some days I feel so much Pressure to be magical,

you know?
